After a bit of a break from the Then and Now series I’ve decided to get it up and running again. Usually I explore the Vancouver Archives online database however I’ll be pulling from the Vancouver Public Library‘s collection for today’s “then” images. The “now” images have been captured from Google Maps.

1922 – Main & Broadway. Photographer / Studio: Timms, Philip

    With all the controversy over the possible new art gallery location, it would be interesting to see photos of the Court House/now Art Gallery over the years. I am sure there are some amazing images. I still remember going to the old gallery space on Georgia (don’t ask how old I am). A lot of things have happened on those steps over the years and I am guessing they were photographed a lot in the early years as well.

    What happened to the old photos? I wanted to show these photos to my sister and the old shots are gone?
